DIY Body Scrub - The Winter Edition

I posted a DIY Coffee Scrub recipe here a couple of months ago. However, the winter season has seen me alter the recipe to make it more wintery and cosy.. if that's even possible with a scrub. Personally, I love the smell of warm spices in the winter. Think chai, mixed spice. Doesn't the thought make you feel a tad warm and fuzzy? 

1 cup of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of almond oil
2 heaped teaspoons of mixed spice
1 heaped teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1 container to place your scrub it. Make sure it is sealed, we don't want any water from the shower getting in! Mine was only $2.00 from The Reject Shop. 

1. Add all ingredients in a bowl and mix. 
2. Transfer into your container.
3. Scrub away!

You can always alter the scrub to suit your preferences. If you prefer a less grainy texture, add more almond oil and more sugar if you prefer it more coarse. Just eyeball the consistency. If you prefer the scent to be stronger, add more mixed spice and the opposite if you would like the scent to be more mild. 

The almond oil in this scrub will leave your skin moisturised and the sugar will leave it smooth.
